CREDIT RECOVERY Q & A


Those of you waiting for guidance approval on FLVS need to wait until you receive your report cards - - quarter/final grades may have reaveraged with a higher final grade which would mean some of you DO NOT NEED to complete credit recovery. Some of you MAY STILL NEED to complete credit recovery, so Ds or Fs that shows on your report card need to be replaced but REMEMBER: you can only earn 12 credits per year.
***So if you earned all 8 credits this year, but with Ds, you can only replace up to 4 of those credits...
***Also, some of you are claiming you still need guidance approval when in fact your parent/guardian needs to grant you online approval through their own account. Go HERE to start that parent/guardian account.

HAVE A GREAT SUMMER ALL!! You will be missed. Don't forget to keep exercising your minds so you won't forget all you learned this year!

  • Report cards will be mailed out next week
  • Summer school information will be sent with report cards
  • Florida Virtual School credit recovery (www.flvs.net) is a good option for any Ds or Fs you received this year - Fs mean you failed to earn credit and Ds mean your GPA will drop! YOU MUST HAVE THAT 2.0 TO GRADUATE!
